The movie did a fairly decent job of translating it to the screen. The biggest knock is that it is almost beat for beat the same story as Men in Black, except with demons instead of aliens.
Neither of the lead characters gets much development and the book doesn't have Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, whose charisma manage to sell some things , and the I saw the movie and didn't completely hate it, so I decided it was worth trying out the source material. Neither of the lead characters gets much development and the book doesn't have Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, whose charisma manage to sell some things , and the whole concept and execution of the creatures coming back from the dead doesn't feel very well thought out.
There are some decent action beats, but nothing too exciting. And the art style is weirdly out of alignment with the story - it's cartoonish, but with a surprising amount of gore. It doesn't quite resonate right for me. A good start to the Rest In Peace Department, for those of you who saw the movie before reading the graphic novel you will recognise many of the traits and ideas within.
The two main characters are a sheriff who died 99 years ago and due to retire and his new trainee, a fresh out of death copper.
The characters are well fleshed out and interesting with many unique and darker takes on the world around us.

The premise sounded promising: An cop killed by a demon, brought back to serve years as an undead law enforcer. But what ensued in the following pages was menial dialog, cookie-cutter tropes and contrived action that only 12 year olds would appreciate no When I heard this was picked up for a film starring Ryan Reynolds Wolverine, Green Lantern, Deadpool , I figured I would take a gander at this miniseries.
But what ensued in the following pages was menial dialog, cookie-cutter tropes and contrived action that only 12 year olds would appreciate no offence to twelve year olds. While a young teen may have enjoyed this comic, I found it unsatisfying at nearly every turn.
I can only hope that the film version drastically alters the vision of the series, but even then I might be non-plussed. A fun, quick read. I haven't yet seen the film so I won't make any comparisons to it; though the film is one of the reasons I decided to read the comic. I like to read the book before I watch the film. The story was a bit sparse in some places, but I sort of thought this was a one-off so there wouldn't be much investing in the world building.
Though, with the quickness of the story, it wasn't difficult to figure out the kind of mystery of who killed Nick.
Still, I had fun reading it. The best thing about this miniseries and they do mean mini—I finished it in less than twenty minutes is that I did not pay to read it.
Basically it's a buddy cop tale set in God's undead police force; two revenant cops—a veteran and a rookie, of course—solve the rookie's murder while hunting and killing demons which are on the lam. It reads so quickly that it basically sums itself up.

Okay, I can, but it isn't pretty. Feb 09, A. Well, I can say that I think I've seen the movie now. This had it's moments of humour and fun. I'm trying to decide what it was that I didn't really care about but I think that's it - I didn't care about the characters or the plot.
It was fun, light, and I've set it aside totally now that I've put it down. And we're left with "it was okay" as my reaction to this. It wasn't bad or anything, it was just Kind of disappointing. Short but not exactly sweet. Having seen the film, I knew where things were going regarding a particular part of the plot but that isn't the book's fault.
Still, it is inoffensive and quick to read so it is an OK time passer. This is a fast-paced fun story blending hard-boiled police action with fanciful monsters and demons. It manages to balance the noir elements with humor and horror very well. I really liked the more cartoony art style also.
We'll see if the movie adaption can come anywhere close to being this entertaining. Mar 26, Samantha rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm not much of a graphic novel reader, but I figured I would give this one a shot. It was short and straight to the point but I genuinely liked it. It's a good starter graphic novel for people wondering what all the craze is about. Apr 19, Jason rated it it was ok Shelves: Definitely on the short side.
Nick and Roy could have done with more fleshing out. Nov 14, Jesse rated it liked it Shelves: While I found the movie funnier and a lot more clear as to how the whole R.
Also, after having lost it for about seven months, I'm glad to have the opportunity to read it at all! Pretty good! It's a little cliched and it's very frustrating that it's so short!
Will definitely read more of these if they come into being! Will have to be satisfied with the prequel that has been written for the upcoming film Nov 11, Carol rated it it was ok Shelves: Read this after I saw the movie, not as good as I was expecting. Aug 12, Bosco Burns rated it liked it.
Instead, a film was built around characters like The Shoveler and Mr. Furious, creating a spot-on riff on superhero movies before superhero movies were ever really a thing. Both the movie and the series have the same central idea: a man discovers a magical mask that, when worn, transforms a person into an unstoppable creature powered by their own id.
In the film, that was an excuse for Carrey to make all kinds of silly faces and act like a cartoon character. In the Dark Horse comics series, the wearer of the mask became a violent and terrifying vigilante who dealt his own brand of cruel justice. In fact, New Line strongly considered making 'The Mask' as a straightforward horror film for quite some time before deciding to play up the comedy. Both tell the story of a small-town man whose past as a violent criminal is suddenly outed, but the film diverges from its source material in many key ways.
On the page, it's a far more straightforward crime story, with much of the plot dedicated to explaining the exact details of what went down in our hero's troubled past. The film is weirder and more ambiguous, with director David Cronenberg leaving much to the imagination and leaning heavily on surreal moments and brutal violence.
They may share the same title and premise, but you couldn't imagine more different results.
Like the movie, the comic followed members of a top-secret organization namely agents Jay and Kay as they fought against extraterrestrial threats facing the planet. Unlike the movie, aliens were only the tip of the MiB's jurisdiction in the comic version.
Not only did they protect the Earth from the scum of the universe, they protected Earth from every supernatural threat imaginable, including demons, zombies and werewolves. The comic was also less comedic, ultimately revealing that the Men in Black organization had nefarious plans of its own for the world. Also, Agent Jay is a white blonde dude in the comics. Unlike many of the comics on this list, it wasn't an existing series whose rights were picked up by a movie studio.Written by Jeremy Barlow and Peter M.

Volume 1 by Peter Lenkov. I like experiencing the movie without having a clue about what's going to happen, and the book usually varies enough from the movie that I can enjoy that story, too. Nov 11, Carol rated it it was ok Shelves:
